Hi All,

My employer after too much of talks is ready to file. But in all the applications he wants to put his address so that he receives the EAD card and AP..He is not ready to put my address. Can he keep my EAD card ?

Gurus please advise...

Usually, even if the employer or attorney put their address, the USCIS mails the card to the address marked as the home address of the applicant.

Note that the I-765(EAD) and AP are not mandatory forms. Talk your employer into saying "these are not required right now, we can file later". And once he files the 485 and 140, you can always file the EAD and AP yourself (or use a lawyer).

I have a feeling he's trying to keep all documentation to himself. Don't let your guard down.

Purely my opinion.

As all PD are now current, number of EAD filling will increase. So the processing time will be about 6 months for EAD.
My question is what will happen, if the PD retrogress before EAD is approved. Will it be still approved, or will have to wait till PD get current again.
